L’Oréal, the parent company of much-loved beauty products such as Lancome, Garnier, Kerastase and Biotherm, are continuing their commitment to an eco-responsible approach by focused on understanding the impact of their business on the environment.
The Group has established three significant long-term environmental targets for its plants and distribution centres: cut in half greenhouse gas emissions (absolute reduction); cut in half water use per unit of finished product; and cut in half waste generated per unit of finished product.
To further these aims L’Oreal opened a biomethane production centre. The plant now uses 100 per cent green energy and is carbon-neutral. The first of its kind in Europe, the centre employs state-of-the-art technology to transform biomass from local farmers and the agro-alimentary industry into methane gas, which provides electricity and heat to the L’Oréal Libramont plant.
